ASC topped the league table with 13 points, with four wins from five matches in the six-team competition.

The final league match between ASC and BSNL on Monday was decided by toss of coin as rain played spoilsport. BSNL won the toss and the match was treated as they won by 3-2 against ASC.

LIC rallied to down KSP 23-25, 25-18, 25-21, 25-15 in the second match. Setter Yashwanth Kumar, attacker M N Vikaram and blocker T C Sreeshekar excelled for the winners. Attacker Nagesh and libero Sajeesh Kumar’s good performances were not good enough as KSP went down four sets.

The second phase of the four-phase KVL will be played at the Sree Kanteerava stadium from December 11 to 15.

Results: MEG bt DYSS 17-25, 25-17, 25-16, 25-23; LIC bt KSP 23-25, 25-18, 25-21, 25-15, BSNL bt ASC (by spin of coin).
